Italicus Rosolio Di Bergamotto
A trailblazing Italian liqueur, quickly becoming a favourite of Australian bartenders.
Named the Best New Spirit/Cocktail Ingredient at the 2017 Tales Of The Cocktail event – arguably the most prestigious annual worldwide gathering for the scene – Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto is now spreading around the world.
A citrusy, floral liqueur made with a range of Italian sourced ingredients – it’s used for cocktails and as an aperitive. The Rosolio style of liqueur dates back to the 15th century, but is rarely seen in the modern world.
All the ingredients sourced from Italy; bergamot from Calabria, cedro from Sicilia; roman camomile from Tuscany, lavender, gentian, yellow roses and melissa balm from Piemonte. The neutral grain spirit base, bottle and stopper are also Italian.
Official tasting notes:
Nose: Lightly citrusy with hints of rose and lavender.
Palate: Fresh tones of ripe citrus fruits are balanced with a light bitter and floral spice before giving way to a complex and long-lasting finish.
